Groovalicious by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I have a bit of a fun card for you this week using some of the end of the year new release products that I didn’t get around to playing with then.

Here’s What I Did:-

I created a quick background by using the tie dye stencil as a stamp by patting various colours of mini Distress ink pads onto the stencil, lightly misting with water and then laying onto white card to transfer the print. Make sure that you don’t over mist the stencil as you need to retain the white space so on top of the stencil lay a piece of kitchen paper to catch any seepage of the colour before removing the stencil. I love this effect.

I then stamped the character onto a separate piece pf paper and coloured him using coloured pencils. To make him a little more groovy I have given him a groovy headband cut from a scrap of fabric. I also have added Glossy Accents to his glasses.

I stamped and coloured some of the accents stamps from the set to add a little detail and allow me to ground him on the card. I then stamped the ‘Groovilicious’ sentiment.

Here’s What I Used:-

Mixed Media Card (or watercolour card)
Mini Distress Ink Pads – Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Carved Pumpkin
Spectrum Noir Paper Stumps
Fabric Scrap
Kitchen Roll
8 x 8 Card Blank

Hope it made you smile and I’ll see you next Tuesday
